While Teen Mom OG brought the reality stars together in 2018, the pair’s bond has become even stronger after they became victims of gun violence on separate occasions.
On the Sept. 20 episode of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter, Cheyenne continued to recount an incident where her car was shot at 13 times while she was driving her kids. In hopes of receiving support, Cheyenne called Maci, who recalled her own traumatic experience.
“With me, I wasn’t targeted and my children weren’t with me,” Maci said. “I just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
During season 9 of Teen Mom OG, Maci witnessed a shootout at a gas station near her home in Chattanooga, Tenn. She said she suffered PTSD from the incident and went on to seek professional help from a trauma therapist. “It would be in your best interest to be proactive,” Maci told Cheyenne. “It’s going to be really hard.”
